Blocked nose and runny nose may be dismissed or tolerated in the erroneous belief that they are just inconveniences in life. But a poor nasal airway may contribute to sleep deprivation and poor exercise tolerance. Poorly managed allergic rhinitis may cause difficult asthma control especially in brittle asthmatics. Chronic sinus infections also result in lethargy, chronic fatigue or even more serious infections. Epistaxis may be an early warning sign for nose cancers. Beware of the unilateral blocked nose, unilateral rhinorrhea or unilateral blocked ear.

Our clinic is equipped to perform diagnostic nasoendoscopy and allergy testing. Our treatment philosophy is based on a holistic, structured regimen of medical and surgical intervention techniques to achieve an optimal result. Our doctor is trained in the latest endoscopic techniques of complicated sinus cases.
